Effects of burn injuries

If you have ever experienced a burn, you know that even a minor one can be painful and distracting, and it can sometimes inhibit you from performing basic tasks. However, more severe injuries can be life-altering. Here at The Law Office of George H. Romania, we understand the detrimental effects that many burn victims in Connecticut must face for the rest of their lives.

Depending on the severity of the burn and the areas affected, your injuries could require constant physical care, or intense therapy to recover use of your limbs. You could potentially develop an infection, resulting in further damage to the body, or even death. Other potential side effects include injury to the lungs, heart trouble and significant damage to internal organs, in addition to damaged skin. The physical impediments that burns cause may cost you your job and your independence, and they could change the course of your entire career.

Another alarming effect of major burns is psychological trauma. Injuries could cause an onset of post-traumatic stress disorder, which often requires counseling and emotional support to overcome. Additionally, the physical disfigurement could have a negative effect on your emotional well-being.

Both the physical and emotional effects of a severe burn injury could cost you a significant amount of money. Extended time in the hospital, counseling and possibly even reconstructive surgery could add up to an overwhelming financial burden on you or your loved ones. More information about the various effects of burn injuries is available on our webpage.
